Los Angeles, CA – Tekashi 6ix9ine has become a Hip Hop’s poster child for turncoats to police.
The incarcerated rapper’s fellow Brooklynite and former welterweight boxing champion Zab Judah offered his thoughts on Tekashi’s legal situation in the 16th edition of his Vlad TV interview released on Monday (March 23).
Judah believes Tekashi “turned back into a child” who wasn’t about that street life as to why he cooperated with federal agents and gave up names of his 9 Trey Gangsta Bloods associates as he pled guilty to a racketeering charge in 2019.
“I don’t think that what was shown to the world was his intentions,” Judah said. “I don’t think that he meant to maliciously just go out and just hurt somebody and do stuff. He didn’t really his power and what was going on and what he was capable of doing.”
As a result of snitching on several 9 Trey gang members, the embattled “GUMMO” lyricist had his 47-year prison bid reduced sentence to two years, including 13 months already served, which was handed down in December 2019.
Tekashi was originally held in custody in November 2018 and will be released within the next three months as part of his plea deal.
“Everybody knows my life. That’s nothing that I would do. I wouldn’t partake in that,” Judah said. “He got spooked. When people get spooked, they do crazy things.”
Judah, who said he’s been friends with Tekashi’s ex-manager Shotti and many 9 Trey Bloods for a long time, also mentioned that Tekashi’s financial earnings from the rap industry was what drew him into the gang life which wasn’t true to his personal background.
“I don’t want none of them in that situation. Shotti’s my bro,” Judah added. “I know Shotti, I know all of them, man. I hope that no matter what happens to those guys, I wish God be with those guys.”
